Gun barrel automatic inspection robot by Soosung Defense Industries Ltd., Korean
The main scope of Soosung Gun Barrel Automatic Inspection Robot project is locate defects due to corrosion and obstacle at the inner side of the barrel. Nevertheless, damage still occurs, which reduces the strength and accuracy of the barrel. If it goes undetected and becomes severe, the barrel can be damaged, sludge powder residues affect shooting accuracy and the lifetime of the barrel. So, extensive efforts are made to miligate defects. So Soosung proposed a new design in inspecting gun barrel.
